CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – No. 25 North Carolina’s five-run fourth blew open a tight game and handed the Eagles their ninth consecutive loss on Sunday by a final of 10-4. The Tar Heels swept the three-game series by a combined score of 25-8 to improve to 18-6 while the Eagles dropped to 4-11 this season.
Lori Spingola (11-4) got the win for UNC while allowing six hits and four earned runs over 5.1 innings. Andrea Filler (2-8) took the loss for BC as she surrendered 10 hits and seven earned runs over 3.1 innings.
